Transaxillary Breast Augmentation
Transaxillary Breast Augmentation (Armpit Approach) has been a popular breast augmentation approach for many years since there are no scars on the breasts, only near them concealed in one of the skin folds in the armpits. The implants may be placed either above or below the chest muscle. The scars usually heal well, and are only faintly visible if at all with the arms held straight up over the head. Transaxillary breast augmentation is more difficult than procedures that leave scars directly on the breasts, such as the breast crease (IMC) approach or the around the areola (Periareolar) approach. Therefore, some surgeons do not offer this type of surgical approach.
If you feel you are a candidate for the transaxillary approach, call us today to set a thorough consultation to discuss your options. Please See The Breast Implant Gallery below for more examples.
